Supporting a loved one with a spinal injury: rehabilitation and care

Rehabilitation and care for spinal injuries can often become frustrating to navigate if you are unsure of what the best care for your loved one is.

Moving to a place of care can be an anxious experience so it is important to create a smooth transition for your loved one.

Although the process might seem daunting, Almond Care are here to help and support you along the way.

Spinal injuries

Spinal cord injuries, or SCI, often occur when there is sudden and intense damage to your spinal cord.

The main causes of spinal injury are:

  • Road traffic collisions 
  • Falls 
  • Violent attacks 
  • Sporting injuries 
  • Domestic accidents.

If your loved one has damaged their spinal cord, it is very important you get them quickly to a hospital.

Hospital treatment comes before any type of aftercare that we offer, and you must give your loved one’s spine the best treatment urgently by seeking medical care.

The National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital offer lots of initial treatments.

These include:

-        Injury management to all areas of the spine to reduce swelling 

-        Surgical spinal injury management when a neurological shortage is approaching 

-        Correction and stabilisation of spinal deformities and instabilities.

Long-term care

At Almond Care, we offer a nurse-led complex care centre which delivers excellent and bespoke spinal injury care.

This ensures your loved one receives the best treatment and support for them.

Our client-centred care means your loved one will receive tailored and specialised care plans to suit their ever-changing situation.

The team of nurses and healthcare professionals, at Almond Care, are trained and qualified to deal with the challenges that SCI gives our clients.

Our therapies, treatments and care plans include:

-        Long-term ventilation 

-        Physiotherapy care/care including standing frames and splint 

-        Management of their nutrition
